Many Indigos fall into this group. Being inherently very sensitive, in almost every way (emotionally, physically, psychically), and often perceived as ‘odd’ by others, Indigos find being in the material world quite difficult. Not only are they easily hurt by the ordinary emotional rough and tumble of the narcissistic injuries of everyday life, but they can easily be targets for mockery or bullying. They may attempt to survive by suppressing their Indigo nature. The result may be a persona that appears cold, cynical, or exploitative – fearful of emotional closeness and expressions of love. Turning to drugs and alcohol may frequently occur amongst this group. In time, and given appropriate signals and nurturance, the damaged Indigo may discover his or her true nature.
